When a traumatic event excessively overflows a person’s ability to handle himself/herself in his/her usual way; we can say that psychological trauma is present.
When a crisis is as pandemic as we are living today, the number of Psychiatrists and Psychologists are not enough to assist people. We as coaches and supervisors cannot “treat” them, but we can listen to the amount of stress, and learn how to contribute, in a similar way that other professionals might “Be with the client” in these situations.
In our specific case, as supervisors, we can listen to the stress in the story about the client, but also distinguish the pressure that the coach could be living.
A significant change in our work as supervisors is refining our listening, to listen to concerns about health, family, work, relationships, death, and fears, of our clients and their clients.
During this session, we will analyze some examples of how post-traumatic situations are heard and identify some actions that we can take as coaches and supervisors.
